    French onion soup was loaded with pepper, and lacked Sherry. The creamed spinach was way to salty. Potato purée was good. Cowboy Ribeye was a bit over salted as well, but tender and flavorful. Service was excellent. Have to think twice about coming back since we were not overly enthusiastic although we loved the ambiance. Just wish the food tasted more fresh tasting than heavily salted.

    If you want elegance this is your place. They have attention to detail and the food is amazing. It’s not cheap for sure, but if it’s a special occasion, this is week worth the extra money.

    I always look forward to my meals here. I love the ambiance... simple elegance, good table spacing... a beautiful and very comfortable room. The food is really excellent... very consistent, always satisfying. The service is exacting, efficient and proper... rare these days. The staff is personable. Came tonight for the Prime Rib... only on Thursdays. The Prime Rib was superb, perfectly cooked, ordered Medium. Served with a few carrots and mashed potatoes... also, so good. I started with the Onion Soup... fantastic. Bread service is good, love the butter. My gin and tonic was perfect... Chateau Gloria was excellent with the meal. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    I love dining here. Located in the Encore Hotel, Rare Steakhouse is such an enjoyable spot. Rare is a good name for it... not as a reference to the temperature of a steak, but in reference to how rare it is these days to find a restaurant that offers such a complete dining experience that hits the mark in all areas. The place is beautiful, the service is excellent... from the moment you walk in till you leave. Malik, at reception, is a real pro that is in charge in a professional way that gives you confidence that you're in good hands and you're about to have a dining experience will be special. The food and libation are carefully prepared and on a very high level. My meals here in the past have been great, so I was dying to try their Prime Rib... however, it's only offered on Thursdays. I made a special effort to get to Rare last night just for that Prime Rib.... I'm so glad I did. Another fantastic meal!! I started with their excellent Crab Cake and then had the smaller cut of Prime Rib (Queen's Cut). It was plenty to eat and it was great! The photo says it all. (I asked for the accompanyments on the side). The wines by the glass that I chose were enjoyable and matched very well... Chablis, Domaine Laroche, St. Martin, Burgundy 2018 with the crabcake. With the Prime Rib... Grenache, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe, Télégramme, Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2016. I like their wine service. Perfectly polished glasses, and they present the bottle at the table and offer a taste before they pour. That's the way to do it! My waiter, Xavier was fantastic, very attentive and professional... and the busboy for my table, Fernando, was excellent as well. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    We went on a Thursday evening when they have a prime rib special. I have to say that it was a very generous piece of prime and it was absolutely cooked to perfection and delicious.

    Outstanding food and service! The filet mignon and Wagyu were cooked to perfection. We visited for a very special occasion and they went above and beyond to provide a chocolate mousse dessert with a gold foil ‘Congratulations’ message that made our visit even more memorable. Definitely recommend.

    Been to Rare several times and it never disappoints! Decor is beautiful, service is impeccable and the Apps & entree’s are fabulous. I am working my way through the menu looking forward to my next visit. Highly recommended for special occasions. I always felt safe dining there during Covid. The staff goes the extra mile in the dining room & the kitchen to ensure preparation is exactly as ordered. Presentations are very nice!

    I believe our server's name was Steven - He was fantastic. Having been a server myself for many years, I admired and respected his style, timing and charm. 10/10! Of course the food was fantastic, as usual, but Steven and our other support staff sealed the deal. Thanks for taking great care of us! P.S. We would love to know what playlist we were listening too! Great music :)
